daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-election since fdr. in the president's first six months there was a lot of money spent some of it by choice, most of it by need. the wall street bail dpts out, the federal stimulus and the auto bailout. at the time most of us said as gm goes, so goes the presidency. >> you know this really is a big one. it's kennedy in the steel industry, it's reagan the air traffic controllers. this is a big moment. >> and on tuesday, this race could come down to how that decision has echoed in the state of ohio where government spending wasn't popular and neither was health care. three cruel summers began

1994 massachusetts senate race would be a fascinating precursor to the 2012 presidential election with many of the same issues and campaign tactics put in play by both sides. romney, playing up his business success, his opponent questioning it, and questions about romney's religion, the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. but in 1994, it was ted kennedy, a five-term senator, who seemed vulnerable, coming off the well publicized 1991 rape trial of his nephew, william kennedy smith. even though smith is acquitted, the political damage to kennedy is clear. in 1994-'94, ted kennedy was somewhat weak. he had just come off of this period of kind of reckless bachelorhood that had brought him a lot of bad headlines. he didn't look particularly good. he seemed actually like somebody who you could beat. >> romney offers himself up as the anti-kennedy. >> he made a great impression. we thought he had a great story. >> the miracle happened. >> romney is married, the father of five sons., and has the right dna. >> i'm standing here now with governor george romney who is telling me -- >> hi

stake in this election. now, change in the future where we reduce our deficit that's balanced and responsible. i signed a trillion dollars worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work. if we're serious about the deficit, we've also got to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office because, as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow the nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. and i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agen

the election this is also being viewed through a political lens. governor chris christie, a romney surrogate, will show the president the destruction, while new york mayor michael bloomberg politely declined a visit. this morning the president got a substantial briefing on what's happening and the federal support that's being provided for the recovery. some are calling this a commander in chief moment. but at the very least, this hurricane has complicated a very close presidential race. take a look at the latest national polls of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenev
